History, Heritage, and Culture: Digital Storytelling for All
February 25 @ 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Indian River State College welcomes Dr. Taylor as he presents a low-lift, high-impact approach for everyone to leverage digital technologies for storytelling of history, heritage, culture, and community. He will provide an intellectual background for understanding how communication is continually changing as a result of digital technology advancement. The attendees and workshop participants will take away strategies for creating and sharing histories using a digital humanities framework that includes students and faculty, artists and historians, young folks and old, campus and community members, and especially those who might have been historically excluded from public storytelling. Dr. Taylor will introduce participants to Adobe Spark, which is a free, web-based application for novice digital storytelling. The session will showcase a wide array of digital storytellers across many modes and disciplines, and it will leave attendees with an easy-to-follow demonstration for beginning to tell and share their story. This program is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Indian River State College.
